CALEDONIA - If you asked parents who learned the most today, the answer may surprise you.

TODAY'S TMJ4 visited Gifford Elementary School this morning as dozens of kids filed into kindergarten for the first time. 
 
"It's emotional," lamented Kayla Vandewater, who dropped off her daughter, Jocelyn. "She's my first child and this is her first all day school. It'll be a tougher day for me than her."
 
Vandewater made it through fine, though - and without any tears. 
 
"We've been getting in a routine the past few days just getting ready."
